As noted at technology news sites that day, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop unveiled the latest Nokia smartphones during the developers’ conference in London, the Nokia Lumia 800 and the Nokia Lumia 710.

“Eight months ago, we shared our new strategy, and today, we are demonstrating clear progress of this strategy in action.” Elop was quoted in a statement during his opening keynote address.

“We’re driving innovation throughout our entire portfolio, from new smartphone experiences to ever smarter mobile phones. It’s a new dawn for Nokia.” Elop added.

Apparently, the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 are the company’s attempt to have its own space in the smartphone market, which is currently being dominated by Apple iPhones and Google’s Android OS.

According to Nokia, Lumia 800 sports a 1.4 GHz processor, 16GB of internal user memory, 512 MB of RAM, and looks like the very similar to the MeeGo-based Nokia N9.

It also has a Carl-Zeiss, f2.2 aperture, an 8-megapixel camera, and a 3.7-inch, curved-glass, AMOLED screen. Lumia 800 will be offered in three different colors including cyan, magenta and black.

The Nokia Lumia 800 will be approximately cost about €420 (around $584) and will be available in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK next month, November.

On the other hand, Nokia Lumia 710 will also have the same RAM memory capacity, screen size, and the same processor as the Lumia 800. However, it only has a 5-megapixel camera and will be sold for €270 (around $376).

Nokia Lumia 710 will be available in stealthy black and crisp white, with a back cover of various choices of colors including black, white, cyan, fuchsia and yellow.

Both smartphones were noted to be available in Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan before the end of the year 2011, and in further markets in early 2012.

Meanwhile Nokia also unveiled four other new cell phones as part of the Asha family; the Nokia Asha 200, 201, 300 and 303, which the company said will be “blurring the line between a smartphone and a feature phone”.

Later in January 2012, Nokia Lumia 900 was unveiled at the CES 2012 by Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, the company’s first Windows smartphone for AT&T.
